Micador ColouRush Competition 2018

Hi again.  I have a new prize giveaway for you all.  This one is sponsored by Micador, an Australian company marketing a wide variety of art gear for artists kid sized to adult.  They have approached me to run a giveaway to celebrate the release of the new pencil tin packaging for their 12 and 24 set ColouRush pencils. They will be giving away 10 sets of 24 pencils in their new, very well made, metal cases.  These cases have the lids attached via a hinge so it can’t go for walkabouts while you colour.  Micador ColouRush pencils were one of the first pencils I started colouring them and they remain one of my favourite budget conscious pencil.

Koi coloured with Micador ColouRush pencils from Angela Porter’s ‘Color me Calm’ colouring book.

I even have a set in my travel pouch for when I’m making art on the go.  Here is an example of my own work from my little A5 cartridge paper travel sketchbook.  The picture was one of my experiments scribbled quickly down onto the paper with a ball point pen with no effort put into making it look realistic. lol.  I love how the bright ColouRush pencil colours combine so well to make interesting, colour texture effects.


Here’s what you get in the 24 tin plus a bonus pic of the 12 tin.  The 24 tin features a nice range of bright colours plus a light peach and all those browns for colouring people and animals etc.  Personally I would have liked to have seen a few more bright colours and another choice of blue but I find this range pretty good, particularly if you like to play around with layering colours to produce new ones.

If you would to enter the draw to win one of these ten sets of pencils all you need to do is scroll down to bottom of the page and leave a message using 25 words or less telling me why you would love to win a set of these pencils.  You need to be a subscriber to my YouTube channel as well as subscribe to the Micador Group YouTube channel.  There are links listed below in the terms and conditions.

  68. Jenn Marie

    I would love to win these beautiful pencils as I am still fairly new to adult colouring and have found it to be so beneficial and relaxing. I am currently recovering from brain and nerve damage, which I sustained when I was 21 years old, 36 now. I’ve been bed bound and in alot of pain for years, so when I found adult colouring it was a huge blessing. I finally have something to do in bed, which takes my mind off symptoms and pain. It’s truly a wonder at healing stress and relaxing the mind and body. I currently only have one set of coloured pencils, as they are quite expensive. So I would be so over the moon to win these Micador pencils, as I’ve hear so much about them and they look like amazing quality and the colours are so beautiful and vibrant. Thank you so much for this wonderful chance!

  69. Bianca Spoolder

    Hi Peta, I love to watch your Youtube videos. You explain it all very clearly. I like your style of colouring very much. I just started to colour and I got kind of addicted to it. Because of physical issues this is one of the very few hobby’s I can do. I get a lot of joy of it, especially of seeing the progress I make and the joy I experience by practicing the things I learn through watching your videos.
    As I just started colouring I really would like to use the Micador pencils, because I think they perform really good from what I saw in your videos and because it is hard to get them, because I live in Holland.
    I hope you will be showing a lot more videos on Youtube.
    Kind regards, Bianca.

  70. Lynne Schmitt

    I have been watching you color with these for years. And I am eager to try them for myself. You produce such beautiful work with them. Of course, they aren’t available in the U.S., so I am hoping to win!
